Auto train

An 'auto' aka 'motor' train, or 'push-and-pull' train ran with cable connections from the driver's special compartment with window at the other end of the train (usually one coach), so that when in pushing mode the driver controlled the locomotive remotely, only the fireman staying on the footplate.
